No audible chirp

My audible chirp at lock and unlock stopped working today after my son was playing with my key fob. Is there a combination of buttons to press to turn it back on? 2008 750li

Double tap unlock Or triple tap. It should toggle the chirp back on

I tried double tapping and triple tapping the fob with no luck. If anyone has an answer to this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe your hood isn't fully closed? If not completely closed, the hood will prevent the alarm from chirping.

Correct but he should have gotten a message on Idrive. No audible chirp means smth is not closed or door sensor is bad. The car isn't getting a signal that everything is closed. Inpa would help.

But in the OP's scenario it stopped working after his son was playing with the FOB.

My Alarm Chirp Stop working the other day so i replaced the Hood Switch with a new one and this did not help i was sure that was it. Then i parked on a hill and when i set the car it chirped.. and worked for a few days now its gone again. i spoke to the stealership today they said it could be the Alarm itself of some Antenna either way its 400.00 for one or 800 for the other , I JUST do not want to give them anymore money the prices are crazy. Does anyone no what would cause this and some work around or where i can get the part itself to replace i have a person that can help me put it in just need to know what to get ? /:
